Adityanath also took a jibe at Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi saying "Samjho jahan Rahul Gandhi prachaar karne chale gaye, wahan Congress ki haar pakki (If Rahul Gandhi goes to campaign somewhere, Congress is sure to lose)", as per an Indian Express report.

"Gandhi's remark in Berkley was a message to Congress leaders that he alone will lead the party after his mother and he was the lone contender for the post of party president", he said. Mr Singh said about Mr Gandhi, 47, being projected as a youth leader. His elevation will come before the crucial Assembly polls in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh where the Congress is facing a tough challenge from the BJP. "A person who has not been able to lay even the foundation stone of a collectorate in his constituency despite being in power for 14 years, how do you expect him to develop Gujarat", the UP chief minister questioned. "I congratulate Gujarat for giving the country an impressive and competent Prime Minister Narendra Modi who is taking country forward on the path of development". "Rahul Gandhi comes to Gujarat to confuse the people about the development agenda of PM Modi". He was appointed the party's vice-president in 2013. The Uttar Pradesh Congress on Thursday had passed a resolution to the head office demanding Rahul Gandhi's appointment as the Congress President.

He also praised reconstruction of Bhuj and Kutch after the natural disaster during the tenure of then Chief Minister Narendra Modi. "The whole DNA of Congress has been reeking of corruption", he said.

"Today, there are only two Congress Lok Sabha Members from Uttar Pradesh, but in 2019 there won't be a single Congress MP in the Lok Sabha". In his interactions with them, he stressed on the fact that a Congress government in the state would listen to the criticism by people and would not indulge in its own "Mann ki Baat". "Ultimately, due to the efforts of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Bharat Ratna was bestowed upon Sardar Patel", said Adityanath.
